In less than a week I’ll be traveling to Maryland for a very exciting project with Cafe Racer XXX and Saint Motor Company. You may recall Saint being mentioned both in the Monster Project (Phase 9: 748 Front End on 750 Monster, Phase 8: Fixing the Tank) and the very popular green cafe racer Ural.
A 55 year old motorcyclist from Parish, New York, went on a ride Sunday organized by the Onondaga chapter of American Bikers Aimed Toward Education (ABATE) during which he sustained head trauma and died.
The ironic part of this tragedy is that he was protesting wearing a state-required helmet. A helmet that would have saved his life.
